We WORK: Understanding the Inner Ecosystem for Remote Workers

Sunlight and Plants to oxidize the room.
When you first take on that new Job, you are ecstatic! You're charged and seem to have an enormous amount of Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual capacity to take things on, to thrive constantly and do well. But overtime, when productivity settles in so does the stress of processing, maintaining and or managing your energy throughout the day. Self-care is Essential for completing projects and assignments, especially for remote and independent workers.

Private booths for information sensitive calls or meetings

 Self-care in fact is a must, and it lives right there in the workplace. As a Wellness Practitioner and Intrinsic Wellness Coach, I am passionate about having a healthy happy work place. 

The simple things we know but take for granted, like staying Hydrating, taking breaks, cooling down, interacting with others, getting a good stretch in, proper digesting lunch before returning to work.

WeWork has a done a fantastic job of providing ambiance and tools needed to hone in and get things done....but attention the Body.... an environment of its own, needs attention too. After sitting for hours at a desk, hunched over your laptop or tilting your head in odd positions while trying to take calls, type or taking notes, the body can get out of sorts and needs a moment of recharge, refresh or simply just pause. Get the blood flowing, the stimulate mental through the physical with some gentle top of the day exercises that won't bother your neighbor.

The BeeBodi Marketplace provided a demonstration to the various companies at DC's WeWork site in Navy Yard on the importance of Body Awareness, Energy Management and the useful exercises from the GYROKINESIS® technique. 

Participants were able to pick from one of the Poll Questionnaire Cards to first bring awareness to their work engagement skills in order to draw conclusions and make better decisions for a healthier work regimen. 

Here's an example:

One of the remote workers who picked a card was able to pinpoint his choices on sugar intake throughout the day were increasingly high, thus causing him to crave more sugar to boost his energy. He'd expressed interested in learning more about Nutritional Guidance. This is a great first step:

It was a great day getting to know the people of WeWork. It's it an place where one has far more freedom to express the body and it's needs throughout the work day. 

Cushion Seating where one can change 
their position, meditate or take a stretch. 
Most importantly the key is actually take part in....become a doer of those things that will help, enhance and sustain that thriving energy that it takes to succeed at work.

Yes, Work, Get Your LIFE. Street/Dance Workshop Jacob's Pillow 2020 NYC

My Life at the Pillow..." ~by JR Glover Today was a Pillow Day. As an Alumni, I traveled North to help facilitate and support the Recruitment Tour amidst other beautiful dancing bodies. It's amazing to see how we have all grown through the years as Dancers, Creatives, Choreographers, Directors and lifelong students. Even more, it's inspiring to know that we are all keeping at it--pursuing Excellence and honing our craft day by day. What was meant to be a standby experience turned out to be a Full Dance Day for me. I give thanks to my peers who encouraged me to dance. It was a risk--knowing that I had not danced or taken a technique class proper in several months. However, due to the nature of GYROKINESIS as an instructor, I never lost body awareness, posture, alignment etc. So it was just a matter of tipping over the edge again to see where my body goes....and catching it again. It was a necessary challenge in fact, with the chronic pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia and C

Keeping Dance Alive, St. Croix Arts Community Outreach

 In 2017, I was at home in Washington DC bedridden and removed from everything that I knew.  My life as a Dancer as I knew it....was no longer. I could barely walk, performing menial tasks around the house was a burden for me. I often felt faint and dizzy. My nervous system had taken a hard hit from the brutal cold winter of Chicago. The winds  shook my bones and my days of job hunting, street performing in the Chicago O'Hare Airport for bills and just aimlessly walking in the snow drove my body into a state of shock. PH.

I'd returned home with question in my mind and heart as to how I would move forward. I was diagnoses with a rare chronic pain condition, Trigeminal Neuralgia. The International Association for Blacks in Dance had just revamped its organization, was g

Remote Work Saves the Day!

  People tend not to understand. Being an Artist means that you get no days off. It’s a 24/7 kind of job whether a Creative Commissioning Artist, a Teacher, Administrator, Advocate or Affiliate there is no way to clock in and clock out of Inspiration. It just hits you and you have to be ready. That’s why it ’ s helpful to just check out of life and into a hotel at times. Not to vacation, but to get a good night's rest, wake up and actually get things done. Maya Angelou, Pulitzer Prize Writer said that she couldn’t write in her home because she was surrounded by too beautiful of things. I get it. There are layers to inspiration in if you’re not in the right setting it can mess with your mental space too.
